(Seguin) - The Lifegate six-man football team returned from its bye week Friday night and treated the home crowd at Falcon Field to an emphatic 74-20 mercy-rule victory over Cedar Park-Summit in the opening game of the TAPPS Six-Man Division II District 4 schedule.
The Falcons jumped out to a 40-0 lead in the first quarter, put the 45-point mercy rule in effect with a 54-6 cushion on Cayden Shellnut's 40-yard touchdown run with 8:54 to play in the second period, and kept the margin above that threshold the rest of the period to end the game by halftime.
Shellnut ran for 140 yards and four touchdowns on just eight carries, completed a touchdown pass to Myles McCord, and returned a punt 45 yards for a score. Quinten Shellunt also ran a punt back for a touchdown.
In addition to hauling in the five-yard touchdown catch, McCord ran for 99 yards and three scores on nine carries and threw a 24-yard touchdown pass to Zac McCulloch.
Barry Osborne and Quinten Shellnut each scored rushing touchdowns as well. Luke Landin connected on three two-point PAT kicks, and Cayden Shellnut added one.
On the defensive side of the ball, Cayden Shellnut recorded 14 tackles, an interception, and a fumble recovery. McCord added eight tackles and two fumble recoveries, and Osborne jumped on a fumble as well.
Lifegate (4-2, 1-0) continues district play this Friday with a 7:30 p.m. home game against San Marcos-Hill Country.
